I bought this book when it first came out and loved the sophisticated use of color and line and the pure joy these quilts impart. I didn't sit down and make a quilt from the book right away, but did pull it out for inspiration from time to time. But it really was invaluable when I wanted to make a quilt for a sweet little girl, and again when I needed a simple and quick pattern for a quilt for my going-off-to-college daughter that would still have a strong sense of color and design.
The quilts in this book are so adaptable to an individual's own style and sense of color, that you'll find yourself using it again and again as a starting point for your own quilts.

I think some reviewers have rather missed the point. There are plenty of books out there telling you how to make traditional quilts by traditional methods. This book is by an artist who uses fabrics as a creative medium to explore colour and form. So many of us are inhibited when it comes to using colour, but Kaffe shows how to lose that timidity, put things together and make them glow. Looking through this book is like enjoying a feast!

I, for one, am glad the Mr. Fassett had the sense to hook up with Ms Lucy to produce this fabulous book. Though not a quilter himself, his application of color sense and design sings! And the clear instructions make it possible for anyone to make any of these quilts- or variations. Now, if I could only shop with them when they are working on their ideas-that would truly be a treat. I love this book- never tire of browsing, and learning about how to use colors and shapes differently than one sees in any other quilt books.

Another beautiful book from a Master of design! Just as he did in his previous, wonderful design books on Needlepoint, Knitting and Home Decor, Kaffe Fassett has brought his exuberant sense of color and pattern to the design of quilts. When you see these gorgeous quilts you'll want to make them all - and you can. That's because the designs are based on simple, nearly traditional, geometric patterns. It's his choice of colors and fabrics that makes them sparkle and with this book as inspiration anyone can learn to see color as freely as Kaffe Fassett does. Heck, even if you don't quilt, you will enjoy browsing through this book for a lift. It is imaginatively photographed in lovely, scenic places and would be a fun book to find on a guest-room bedside table.

The first thing you will notice when you pick up Glorious Patchwork, is the absolutely glorious use of color throughout the book! As in all of Kaffe Fassett's other books, Kaffe's background as a painter shines through in his designs. Glorious Patchwork plays color to the hilt, making the most simple quilt patterns look much more complicated than they really are! The patterns in the book are beautifully illustrated and give you a springboard from which to use your own creativity. This book, while not strictly a quilting how-to guide, will inspire the unleashing of your own use of lush and glorious color. I highly recommend it!

I've seen the advance photos for this new book on Quilting (Patchwork) by Kaffe Fassett and Liza Prior Lucy - it's going to be an innovative approach to designing using traditional quilts as a starting point and going into new ideas of color and layout.

If anyone knows what Kaffe has done for knitting and needlepoint, you will want to get your hands on this new book ASAP (due out in Fall '97)

Liza Prior Lucy is an expert quilter and she and Kaffe had a wonderful creative time doing this book. (I confess to knowing them so I'm biased...)

They also use Kaffe's new handwoven striped fabrics in many of the projects. He designed these to help an Oxfam project in India.

I'll have an interview with them both about the book when the time comes closer - come and visit my Quilting at the Mining Co. site:

While to some this might appear to be a basic how to quilting book, in reality it is a primer on the application of a sophisticated palette to the scrap quilt. Kaffe Fassett is well known for his exuberant use of color, it is that excitement which makes this book so valuable for both advanced and beginning quilters.
